Woody Myers on Jobs

 

 


Would repeal the state's right-to-work law

Q: Support "right to work" laws, eliminating the ability of unions to mandate dues for workers they represent?

Woody Myers: No. As governor, would repeal the state's right-to-work legislation and use executive orders to support worker unions.

Eric Holcomb: Yes. Touted faster union job growth in Indiana than in Illinois, which is a non-right-to-work state. (Claim supported and opposed.) Signed into law bill mandating that teachers be informed of non-union options.

Would support increasing state's minimum wage

Q: Raise federal hourly minimum wage above current $7.25?

Woody Myers: Yes. "A fair minimum wage is fundamental to a fair social/economic system. Will support legislation that increases the state's minimum wage."

Eric Holcomb: No. Would rather create livable-wage opportunities. "When people start to raise the minimum wage that cost is just passed on to the consumer."

Diversify our economy, improve business environment

While Indiana's economy is growing and more people are working, not everyone is prospering.

I'll immediately work to diversify our economy so we're less susceptible to economic downturns and labor force disruptions. I'll implement policies to improve our business environment, with a focus on recruiting businesses that bring good-paying jobs to all parts of the state and supporting existing businesses with retention policies that help them remain competitive.

We deserve best schools, health care, state creating jobs

Myers said, "I learned very early in my career that the people with the best health were the people who got the best health care. The people with the best insurance are the people with the best jobs. And the people with the best jobs are the people with the best education. All Hoosiers deserve the best schools, the best health care and a state that is creating jobs and opportunities for workers and their families faster than wages are rising."
